    stored 06 gto

    I stored my 06 gto for the winter does anyone suggest anything I should do before I start her up for the summer? Example put some kind of additive say for moisture that may have built up from not running all winter. Any suggestions would be a great help.

    same here....I just start it and then do an oil change whether it needs it or not. Last few years I'm doing good to put 2k on the car but I change the oil every spring regardless.

    I agree with all above, you can just start her and not worry.

    You will prob have to grab your battery charger 1st, but other then that, change the oil as others have said.

    I leave mine on a battery tender for six months, when I am ready to start her I check the oil and other fluids, make sure nothing in living in the engine compartment. Since I pack the tank full of 93 octane and Sta-bil I then just crank it up and take it for a ride after she warms up.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
